    We showed up for our 6:45 reservation at 6:55. They canceled our reservation and had already put somebody at our table. Totally ridiculous. We will never go back!!

    It’s not the Guillermo’s I remember. I understand cutting food cost, but when you do, you will pay in the long run. You’re better off not offering a menu item if it’s not cost efficient. We ordered the guacamole, which was delicious. Dinner we both had crane asada which was awful. It even looked bad on the plate. No green, red, peppers, only over cooked onions with a couple jalapeños. Very disappointed!!

    We’ve (my family, and I)have been going to Guillermo‘s for at least 20 years. Every time we go out to the desert which is  two hours from our home, and a vacation spot for family and grandkids. Of the in numerable times we’ve gone to this incredible family restaurant we have never ever been disappointed! The food is fantastic. (do not expect Taco Bell!) this is real food excellent margaritas. , I recommend Bertha’s tamales you’ve never had MASA this special. Great Mole. also!

    I love Guillermo’s. I’ve been coming for years. I noticed a change last night in the quantity of food, I ordered the Guillermo special salad and it’s completely different from what it used to be years ago and not worth the price point. Carnitas and burritos are delicious, but sizing appears to be reduced. Delicious but smaller portions.

    I told our guests from Washington state that Guillermo’s is the best Mexican food in the desert. They agreed it was excellent, but didn’t think our server was very attentive. I think my guests are used to servers that smile and seem happy doing their job!? Oh well. We will be back over and over.

    The wait staff seemed very scattered. Multiple servers asked us the same questions over and over. They were not communicating very well. Granted it was a busy Saturday night, but it felt extremely disorganized and inefficient. We ordered 2 starters and after asking repeatedly, one finally came, but the other one never saw the light of day. The food we did get was very good, but unfortunately the service made the experience a bit distracting.
